This months theme is Halloween. So I thought I'd make a pair of fun "spooky" Halloween shoes!
The technique is the same as some bleach painted shoes I made this last July.
- Inexpensive black canvas shoes. These are from K-mart. $10.
- 100% straight bleach in a small container.
- Small fine tip paint brushes, the more real they are, the better for the project.
- A white cloth pencil.
- A heat tool, sketch pencil, paper, and black Sharpies.
- A well ventilated area.
You will see results immediately.
Add 1-3 coats of bleach to each design. The bleach becomes a lighter orange as the design drys, but if you need to speed up that process, you can go over what you are working with the heat gun. I did this for larger designs. These designs were ones like the jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, or bats.
I think they both look great and the markers helped alot.
are the shoes I made last July.
On the left , they are newly finished. The right, well worn and after a few washes.
Thanks for coming by, let me know what you think in 'comments' and have creative day!
